to the pentagon. >> mu afghanistan policy questions. >> terrorism has not gone away. it has increased. >> brit hume's analysis of the president's economic message. arapahoe county is largely suburban area southeast of denver, home to aerospace engineers and business managers and other professionals. there are some very affluent areas but for the most part it's the upper tier of the middle class. in 2008, barack obama carried this county by more than 35,000 votes. four years before that, george w. bush carried it by more than 9,000. the unemployment rate here is the national average. but it is below the state unemployment rate. another interesting stat about arapahoe county, 54% of the registered voters are women. one of the widest gender gaps in any county in colorado. which is why the obama campaign is hitting this area hard with campaign ads about women's issues.

to the pentagon. the new law that was passed in 2009 was supposed to help make it easier for our service members to register and request an absentee ballot. the inspector general issued a report, of course, about three weeksing that indicated that the pentagon did not implement that law or did not fully implement that law as they were supposed to, and now what we're seeing not only in virginia, but throughout the united states are shockingly low numbers of ballots being requested by military members and their spouses. megyn: so the would-be ballots are not getting to the guys and gals overseas. they're supposed to be setting up these offices overseas in afghanistan where the guys and gals can go get their ballots? >> absolutely. this was supposed to be much like what civilians receive in a driver's license bran. you walk in, and one of the first questions they ask you, would you like to update your voter registration form? when congress passed this law in 2009, they wanted the department of defense to do the exact same thing for service members when they check into a new duty station. why not gi
of power and influence. just as in the united states, the pentagon gave more influence in the state department and others perhaps. same thing in syria. the national security apparatus is very influential. there's some dispute as to how much influence he has over his brother. he is very come every popular amongst the alawite militias as well as the alawite dominated security apparatus and alawite armies. the brother-in-law had been influential. yet then in my view somewhat marginalized in recent years. but again, with a security solution chosen by the regime come he seemed to elevate a little bit until he was killed over the summer. >> host: what about bashar al-assad may surprise people? i read one interview where he said he became an eye doctor because there's no blood involved. just go he told me -- i asked that same question, why did she become an eye doctor? he didn't say he didn't like what, but he lacked the precision of it. he liked the fact that she can cure somebody, you can do some things they can't see them they can't see or they're blurry vision and then they see more cl
